It’s hot. All across the country. Probably will be this weekend too.

Earlier this week we talked with Daniel Engber, a writer for Slate, who defended the use of air conditioning. The vast majority of Americans have air conditioning. And a lot of you kind of love it, as you posted on our Facebook page. But there are some A/C haters too. Take a listen.

Tell us what you think on Facebook or Twitter.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.
